Default Open Office 3?

Is Open Office 3 going to be available for 8.10?

Thanks,

Stable releases only receive security fixes and fixes for serious bugs,
but no newer software versions. This is to *keep* them stable. Newer
version sometimes are made available through backports if there is
enough interest. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuBackports

In any case, OO3 is available through a Personal Package Archive (PPA)
https://launchpad.net/~openoffice-pkgs/+archive/ppa
